Samsung has finally unveiled the Note 8, successor to the notoriously-explodable Note 7. We've already taken a look at its specs, pricing and Australian availability, but how does it stack up against Apple's iPhone 7 Plus? Is it better? Worse? Prettier? Faster? More powerful? Let's take a good, hard look.

If you've dropped a few extra hundred dollars on the iPhone 7 Plus and its fancy dual-camera, then you'll want to be sure of getting your money's worth. That means finding all of the right camera apps that can actually take advantage of the new hardware. With that in mind, here are the best apps we've seen that have been upgraded to make the most of the bigger iPhone's killer feature.
The Melbourne Cup yesterday was a bit of a depraved mess -- if you were out in the paddock, at least. Inside the Myer Marquee, things were a little more dignified. Sydney street photographer Giuseppe Santamaria travelled down to yesterday's Melbourne Cup to snap some photos using Portrait mode on the iPhone 7 Plus, and they're pretty special.
Some of the prettiest photos you'll see this year will probably be taken with the iPhone 7 Plus. It has a portrait mode, finally made available to the public yesterday via the iOS 10.1 software update, that automatically applies a gorgeous blur behind the subject of your photo. (This is called "bokeh" in photo nerd parlance.) Babies look cuter, newlyweds happier and pooches poochier with portrait mode.
With today's release of Apple's iOS 10.1 software update for the iPhone, a standout feature that the company demonstrated at its September announcement but that didn't make it into the initial release of iOS 10 is here. If you invested in an iPhone 7 Plus, then you can now use its dual camera to capture portrait photos with smoothly blurred out-of-focus areas.
At a glance, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus might both be confused for their predecessors, the 6s and 6s Plus. It's deceptive. The iPhone 7 is perhaps the most drastic revision of the phone since it was first released nearly a decade ago. It's not just the missing headphone jack. There are several other big ideas, including a new dual camera system (on the 7 Plus), a new touch sensor home button, and mercifully, newly added water resistance. These are substantial changes, and they hint at what we can expect from the future of Apple phones.
Running about without a case on your brand new phone is a great way to tempt fate. Trust us, the dent on the corner of our new iPhone 7 can attest to that. So buy yourself a case! These are a few of our favourites so far.
Apple's newest iPhone is here, and you've got just a few short hours to figure out which one is the absolute best deal. Although Apple didn't change up design much, the iPhone 7 and its larger 7 Plus sibling have more points of contrast than just size this time around.
Apple's attempt to convince us that a headphone jack-less iPhone 7 wasn't a terrible thing created a whole new uproar when it became clear how easy it would be to lose the new $229 wireless AirPods. But don't worry, there's an easy solution to that problem too: A $US10 ($13) wire that negates all that inconvenient wirelessness.
Apple has a new iPhone. It's more powerful than ever -- the most powerful phone ever. It has longer battery life, and the larger 7 Plus has a unique dual-lens camera. It has no headphone jack. It's waterproof and dust proof. The home button is brand new. And it runs Apple's brand new iOS 10 operating system. Here's everything you need to know.
Second up with plan pricing for the brand new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is Telstra. Telstra will offer the iPhone 7 from as little as $85 per month on its Small plan with 1GB of data, $550 of calls and unlimited messages.
Apple spent a lot of time today explaining that the iPhone 7 is the most "refined" iteration yet. Which is just a fancy way of saying that this phone's design is going to look very similar to last year's phone. Aside from a slightly different finish for the jet black model (glossy!) and some redesigned antenna lines, and that apocalyptic loss of a headphone jack, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus look very similar to their predecessors.
